 On Holy Thursday we gathered at St Marie's for the Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper. The Mass begin with Blessed John Henry Newman's hymn Praise to the Holiest.

After the Homily Father Francis performed the Mandatum - The Washing of the Feet in memory of Christ washing the feet of the Apostles, His first priests at the Last Supper. 

At the end of Mass the Blessed Sacrament was transferred to the Altar of Repose that had been lovingly prepared by some of the men of the parish.  The Watch continued until 11:45pm when those remaining recited Compline.
